Skittles Project part 3

“Can height be used to predict the number of candies that will be in a bag of Skittles you

purchase?”

1. I do not believe that the height of each class mate can predict the total number of

candies in each individual’s skittles bag because there is no logical way to be able to

predict the number of candies in the bag you purchased based on your height.

2. The explanatory variable (x) would be the height of the person buying the skittles bag and

the response variable (y) would be the number of candies per bag

3. Simple linear regression results:

Dependent Variable: Total

Independent Variable: Height

Total = 64.32367 - 0.066960037 Height

Sample size: 35

R (correlation coefficient) = -0.12087521

R-sq = 0.014610816

Estimate of error standard deviation: 2.3176362

Parameter estimates:

Parameter Estimate Std. Err. Alternative DF T-Stat P-value

Intercept 64.32367 6.2749803 ≠ 0 33 10.250816 <0.0001

Slope -0.066960037 0.095724999 ≠ 0 33 -0.69950418 0.4891

Source DF SS MS F-stat P-value

Model 1 2.6282771 2.6282771 0.4893061 0.4891

Error 33 177.25744 5.3714375

Total 34 179.88571

4. No, there is no relationship between the height of each class mate and the number of

candies in the bag they purchased because the absolute value of the correlation

coefficient (-0.12087521) is smaller than the critical value (0.361). This is what I predicted

because there is no way to be able to predict the number of candies in the bag you

purchased based on your height.

5. Regression equation: y^= -0.067x+64.32

Using the regression equation to calculate the number of skittles that would be expected

to be in the bag that was purchased by 63.5 inches tall would be:

y= -0.067(63.5)+64.32=60 skittles.

It not appropriate to use this equation to make a prediction because there is no

relationship between the two variables

6. R2 is the coefficient of determination. To use the liner regression and to interpret R2

there must be a liner relationship between X and Y, and there is not. The closer the Ys are

to the regression line the stronger correlation. In this case R2=0.014610816 which

means that 1.5% of the variation in the response variable is explained by the least square

regression line.

7. No, it would not be appropriate to predict the number of candies in a bag purchased by

Yao Ming because his height is out of the scope of the model.

8. Data values

-X-height

69,64,63,74,67,60,70

-Y-# of skittles

56,59,60,60,61,62,62

-Regression equation: y^=-0.096x+66.4

-Critical value=0.754

-There is no significant relationship because the absolute value of the correlation

coefficient is smaller than the critical value
